That is so frustrating.

{I had to Google what a TPR album was }

I'm sorry that happened. How frustrating! What's the error? Is it something you could cover with a sticker letter or fix somehow?

I hope you'll contact Simple Stories and let them know.

Is TPR a toilet paper roll album? Just guessing.

What is the misprint???

OK I just got the project uploaded. There is a "Y" missing on Enjoy the Everday journal tag.

I posted a pic to their FB Page asking if they have replacements for that card.

Thank you, I gifted it as is and let the recipient know that I didn't catch it before finishing.

UGH - I am so annoyed that I didn't see it. I started with that card as the theme for the whole album *Grin*

It looks like it is the 3x4 Sn@p journal cards (Snappy Sayings). It looks like the misprint is on all of the cards. The sample on their blog is also incorrect.

They have spelt it right on some of their other cards. You would think they would have noticed that it was wrong.

Let us know what they say, there are lots of us who need to know.

oh my, I'm from Mississippi and my sister currently lives in Alabama....I have heard people actually SAY it just like that when we've been down for a visit!! Totally cracked me up to see it in print though!!

Bummer on the album, but it is super cute!! The bad part is I wouldn't have noticed if you had not pointed it out..wondering if I have already used that card and never realized it either!!

I was thinking "southern proof reader" as well!

It is still a lovely album. I'd probably stick a Y on there somehow, just because my OCD would overtake me.

Everday. Is that like the day that never ends?!

Sorry. Couldn't resist! LOL

It seems there have been a LOT of misspellings lately in the industry.

Wonder who is in charge of proofreading?
